MINNEAPOLIS, MN (Nov. 3, 2016) - To help engineers improve sensor operations in unique applications, Turck introduces six line extensions to its ultrasonic sensor offerings. These new products expand the breadth of Turck's solutions to build a more comprehensive ultrasonic sensor portfolio for its customers.


Ultrasonic sensors are ideal in applications with demanding requirements, such as long sensing ranges, non-metallic, irregularly shaped or transparent targets, wide sensing areas and when dust or oil films are present. Featuring advanced technology, Turck's ultrasonic sensors address these challenges to deliver dependable object detection.

Turck's new ultrasonic sensors are available in a variety of housing styles with multiple feature sets to solve difficult applications. Specific new releases include:
• M30 barrel sensors with 6-meter sensing range: These 30 mm barrels offer either a single digital output, dual digital outputs, or a digital output and analog output. The digital and analog output version offers IO-Link capabilities to make parameterization, diagnostics and replacement easy.
• CP40 and CK40 sensors with new housing: The rectangular packages of the CP40 and CK40 product families offer sensing ranges up to 2 meters with either a single digital output or a digital and analog output. Highly visible LEDs and sealed programming buttons simplify monitoring.
• ATEX/IECEx-approved sensors: With ATEX/IECEx, II 3 G approvals, these stainless steel barrel sensors are ideal for use in hazardous locations. Teach by wire, teach by button and teach via IO-Link capabilities are standard on these products.
"These feature sets, along with extremely short blind zones and rugged housing designs, allow Turck sensors to work where others will not," said Rich Tallant, sensors product manager for Turck. "Many of these sensors are designed with compact housings, and our new ATEX/IECEx-approved sensors are ideal for use in hazardous locations. With these line extensions, customers have more reliable solutions for challenging sensor applications."

Additional line extensions include compact sensors with NPN output, compact sensors for retro-reflective applications, and 18 mm barrel sensors with side-sensing transducer.

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics - Right-Sized 7th Axis Robot Linear Rails

IPR Robotics offers a wide range of servo-driven 7th axis linear rails for industrial robots. These rails come in ten different sizes and are constructed from modular high strength extruded aluminum sections to handle payloads of 100 kg to 1600 kg or from steel to handle 2000 kg payloads. This variety of rail sizes allows each application to be sized correctly, controlling the space required and the price point. The drive train design of these rails utilizes helical gear-racks and is proven over 10 years to be repeatable and reliable, even in tough foundry applications.
